As many of us have suspected, there's a lot less than meets the eye to the "moratorium":
The moratorium removes state-provided growth scores based on the state standardized, Common Core-aligned third- through eighth-grade math and English language arts exams from the calculations for teacher and principal evaluations.
The Regents exams and fourth- and eighth-grade science tests would still be factored in.
But wait - I thought there was a "moratorium" on using state test scores in APPR?
Turns out it's a special Cuomo "moratorium" in which some state test scores are still used - you know, like Regents scores for high school teachers.
The devil, as always, is in the details, so we'll see for sure in January when Cuomo gives his state of the state/budget address - assuming he's not under indictment, that is.
